Nicole's Story

I discovered my passion for art at a very young age. I was just 8 years old when I took my very first art classes over the summer. Artists from the well-known Noguchi museum came to my local library to teach us the beauty that is art. I was taught how to draw, sculpt and paint. I have always loved being creative, I enjoy it very much. Since then, my passion for art has grown. I've taken as many art classes as I can and even looked up YouTube videos to help me improve my drawing skills. I know that FIT High School Summer Live will help me grow as an artist even more. In the end, art is just a fun and exciting form to express myself to others.

A Note from Mr. Lao, Nicole's Teacher

Nicole is a very determined individual who- when she sets her mind to a goal or passion- will do everything she can to achieve it. Nicole has a deep passion for art and has demonstrated her passion when I assign her math assignments pertaining to art. I use her projects as an example for other students on how to utilize outside skills (in her case art) to make a presentation more engaging. I know FIT High School Summer Live will help Nicole and be a perfect fit to help her pursue her future in the art industry.

After FIT Summer Live!

I was nervous at first when I walked into the doors of FIT, I didn't know what to expect and whether the class was right for me or not. As soon as I took a seat in my class, I was greeted by a lot of friendly classmates who also shared the same passion as I did. My Professor was very respectful and kind as well, He knew it was my first time at the FIT and he helped guide me through his class procedure. He even showed me how to get around the building of the school! Overall, I felt very comfortable around my classmates, professor, and the school environment on my first day. I knew that I was going to have a great time at this program!


I had spent three weeks at my FIT Summer Program. During those three weeks, I am proud to say that I have learned many skills to help improve my drawings. My Professor has been very supportive of my passion for Art and had offered much advice along with the techniques he taught to help me continue doing what I love most. I have also made new friends throughout the program, friends who have also encouraged me to strive towards my passion. I will forever be grateful for this program, it has motivated me to do more with the beauty that is Art.
